Change to printk breaks /proc/kmsg

The change in 2.1.80 to kernel/printk.c commenting out the wake up of
logwait breaks /proc/kmsg for simple applications like teeing to a file.

It seems like we would want to wake up any waiters after something new
has been written to the log buffer. Was there some problem with doing a
wake up at that point?
